You have recently lost your job or perhaps you've gotten a decrease in pay or lesser hours, and you don't know how you're going to pay your child support payments. You don't know whether to try to get out of them altogether or lower them. Hello, I'm Robert Todd, and I'm here to answer the question: How to lower child support payments. Well, the first thing you want to remember is that all 50 states have different laws on child support obligations and payments, and so the first thing you want to do is be sure that you are paying attention to the particular laws of the state that ordered the child support payments in the first place. Now, it'd be very good if you can get the other parent to agree with you to lower the payments, but if you can't, you're probably going to have to do something in the nature of modifying the order of the court that set forth the child support payments in the first place. Now, many, many states offer the opportunity of self-help, and you can go on their websites and check out the forms to see if you understand them and can complete them. But if you can't, we recommend that you retain the services of a family law specialist that knows how to lower child support payments. I'm Robert Todd, and thank you for watching.
